My Kenmore 110.46462500 washer just started making a load noise during the spin cycle. It does spin and take the water out of the clothes, but it makes a loud noise, kind of like an amplified version of what a vacuum cleaner makes when the brush-head is spinning against a hardwood floor. But very loud!

I've read that it is most likely the (very expensive to replace) bearing. How can I confirm?

When the machine is off, I noticed that the drum seems to have a lot of play/movement when I spin it. It seems to "slosh" around, rather than be firm. Is that normal, or a symptom of some sort?

Thanks!

Chris
